Grant Peeples Brings New Poetry to the Black Dog Literary Night at Lake Ella @ Black Dog Cafe
Jul 5 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Grant Peeples Brings New Poetry to the Black Dog Literary Night at Lake Ella @ Black Dog Cafe | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

Grant Peeples presents New Poetry at Black Dog’s Literary Night

Singer-songwriter and poet Grant Peeples will give a reading at Black Dog Cafe’s Literary night on Sunday, July 5th.

A self-described “vegetarian that watches NASCAR, and tree-hugger with a gun below the seat,” Peeples is known for his axe-sharp socio-political tunes, raucous humor and heart-gigging ballads. In 2012 Peeples took a break from touring and turned his pen to poetry, later publishing his first volume, Grant’s Little Read Book of Poetry. Most of the Black Dog reading will be poems written in 2015, but will include some excerpts from the book

In 2014 Peeples was the recipient of the Focus Foundation Award for Creative Excellence, which cited the “humor, compassion and wisdom of his songs,” as well as their “unflinching social insight and cultural acuity.”
Third Coast Magazine’s John Conquest says “Peeples is unusually literate, unusually honest. And the only songwriter I have ever called ‘ruthless.’

Grant has made seven studio records. Including a trilogy produced by Gurf Morlix. His newest record, “A Congress of Treasons,” will be released in January of 2016.

The Black Dog Cafe is located at 229 Lake Ella Drive. The event begins at 7:30 pm. Free admission.

Imagination Fountain’s Nighttime Finale Show @ Cascades Park
Jul 5 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Please be sure to check the Cascades Park Facebook page and/or call 850.891.3816 to confirm there is not an interruption to this regularly scheduled weekly program.

 

Imagination Fountain - our kidsPerhaps the place where you’ll hear the most laughs and giggles is at Imagination Fountain. Located on the west side of the Prime Meridian Plaza, Imagination Fountain offers a fun, water-park atmosphere for children. The fountain, which features 73 jets, randomly shoots filtered water into the air, wetting even the most suspecting children. Once your little ones have had enough fun, they can change into dry clothes in the public changing rooms right next to the fountain area.

While the fountain offers a fun way to cool off in the daytime, it’s equally cool at night. After dark, Imagination Fountain is not only a water feature, it’s a show! Programmed to music and lights, the fountain performs a magnificent, repeating, seven-minute show beginning at dusk. Some of the hit songs featured in the show are “Celebrate” by Kool & The Gang and “Mess Around” by Ray Charles, who once lived in Tallahassee.

The nighttime finale show runs every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 8:00, 8:30 and 9:00pm.

Rules to Note

  • Fountain is open for play 8:30am – 8:00pm daily
  • No food or drink allowed in fountain
  • No animals allowed in fountain
  • No one allowed in fountain during nighttime finale show
